We are more than open to new 
ideas, too. One recently put forth in 
an indirect and anonymous manner 
was that the most recent Old Boy 
should for a year or so after leaving 
the College be sent the present boys' 
College Times, a reasonable idea which 
we would gladly adopt if we should 

get enough concrete evidence that it 
would be widely welcomed. Please 
send us other constructive ideas. 

Some have said that they miss the 
news about the College itself, its 
games and the rest. Each issue of 
Old Times, including this one, con- 
tains a "College Chronicle" in which 
all that is summarized. We would be 
glad to extend it as much as wanted 
for the material is ready to hand and 
we are not short of space. 

We hope to obtain pictures of all 
Old Boys who have lost their lives 
on Active Service. In this issue we 
publish those we have been able to 
obtain since we last published any 


The difficulties of present circum- 
stances have been balanced, as far as 
membership goes, by the energy of 
the membership secretary, Neville 
Morine. Last year he enrolled the 
greatest life membership in the As- 
sociation's history. This year he has 
enrolled the greatest total member- 

ship as well, in Toronto 314 life 
members and 179 others, out of town 
162 and 123— total 778. In addition 
are 18 ordinary honorary members, 
the masters who are honorary mem- 
bers and the 250 or more Old Boys 
overseas who are honorary mem- 


A fresh batch of Old Boys' ties has 
been received. They are available at 

the College at $1.25 each, and well 
worth it, being of durable quality. 


Mr. Harold Roberts is very anxious 
to help Old Boys or others to find 
employment and to hear from those 
wanting employees. Toronto Saturday 
Night on July 12th carried an article 
by P. Ian Murray ('24-'30), entitled 

"Upper Canada and Harold Roberts," 
describing the work done with so 
much patience, unselfishness and suc- 
cess by the Secretary of the U.C.C. 
Old Boys' Association. 


To all of you, Generals, Brigadiers, 
Commanders, Flying Officers, Ordin- 
ary Seamen, Privates, and all others, 
wherever you are, of whatever rank 
or service, may I as President of the 
Old Boys' Association extend to you 
the best wishes of all of us at home. 

All Old Boys on Active Service 
overseas have been made honorary 
members of the O.B.A. for the dura- 
tion of the war. Needless to say, we 
are extremely proud to have you as 
members and it gives us a great deal 
of pleasure to have your name on our 
mailing list and be able to send you 
the Old Times and any other litera- 
ture from the College which might 
be of interest. 

It is our practice in most cases to 

send mail to your home address, 
marked "please forward," as your 
overseas address may change so fre- 
quently. If you will send us your 
address and particulars of your service 
(or ask your family to do it for you) it 
will enable us to keep our records up 
to date. 

Our basic job as an association is 
keeping in touch with all Old Boys 
of the College and knowing their 
whereabouts. According to our re- 
cords there are in excess of 500 Old 
Boys in His Majesty's Forces and in 
addition many more in the Forces of 
our newest ally, the United States. Of 
this number there are about 250 

A War Records Committee, con- 
sisting of Geo. Kirkpatrick, Gerald 
Ormsby, Ivan Owen, and myself, are 
now trying to get a complete list of 
all Old Boys serving at home or 
abroad, so that when the war is won 
we will be in a position to publish 
a War Record Book of Upper Canada 

Through the bequest of Davidson 
M. Harman (who was known to most 
of us as Uncle Davey) we have been 
able to procure the services of a 
secretary to compile this information. 
A questionnaire will be mailed shortly 
and I would ask your co-operation in 
completing this and returning it 

I would particularly like to thank 
John Page, Dawson Corbett, and 
Alex MacPherson for their assistance 
in the past. Please keep it up. 

Your comrades who have fallen 
(19 to date) are commemorated on a 
new Honour Roll in the front hall of 
the College. 

Nor does our scope enable us to do 
but a small part of what we should 
like to do to show our pride in you. 
We have set up a "War Chest" Com- 
mittee, under the chairmanship of our 
good old friend Geo. C. Gale. We 
hope tangible results of this committee 
will reach you before long. 

The College is flourishing. All 
departments and activities are sound 
and healthy. 

We have been particularly compli- 
mented by the Dominion Government 
requesting the services of Principal 
T. W. L. MacDermot for a special job 
for the first three months of 1942. 
Needless to say, the Board has con- 
sented to this request and during his 
absence Mr. L. M. McKenzie (Butch, 
to you) will act as Head. We con- 
gratulate both and wish them success. 

This epistle is longer than I con- 
templated. Good luck, quick suc- 
cess, safe return. 

Harold A. D. Roberts.

It is an honour and a great pleasure 
to open our Annual Meeting of the 
Upper Canada College Old Boys' 
Association, marking as it does a half 
century of service to the greatest of 
Canada's preparatory schools, Upper 
Canada College. 

Were it not for the war we would 
probably be celebrating this milestone 
in our history in various ways. I feel 
however that these celebrations 
should be held in abeyance until such 
time as our Old Boys who are over- 
seas have returned and we can all 
celebrate together when, as Mr. 
Churchill says, they "finish the job". 

During the war of 1914-1918 there 
were, according to records, 1,111 Old 

Boys of U.C.C. on Active Service. 
In this world war our list now stands 
at 492 Old Boys and Masters in the 
Navy, Army and Air Force. To the 
best of our knowledge there are 7 
Old Boys prisoners of war, 14 are 
missing and 14 have made the 
supreme sacrifice. We revere their 
memory and extend to their families 
our sincere sympathy. Through the 
Old Boys' office we are endeavoring 
to communicate fairly regularly with 
the prisoners of war and we have also 
sent Christmas greetings to all Old 
Boys on active service. 

The health of the Association 
measured by members is excellent 
thanks to our Membership Secretary, 

Mr. Nevil Morine. He has done a 
grand job. 

Once again the Old Boys' Hockey 
game was a big success both numeric- 
ally and financially. 

The Party given annually by the 
O.B.A. for the boys in the Upper 
School was held in January. This 
year in addition to asking the fathers 
of present boys we also asked the 
mothers and wives of Old Boys so, 
needless to say, the Party was better 
than ever. 

The Smoker and Old Boys' Golf 
Tournament were both a little dis- 
appointing numerically but what was 
lacking in numbers was more than 
made up in enjoyment and enthusi- 
asm. Financially both events were 
highly successful (Calling Foster 

No dinner was held this year but 
plans are under way to have one 
early in the New Year on a fixed 
date so that Old Boys, wherever 
they may be, can celebrate the same 
time as we do in Toronto. 

In the next issue of the "Old 
Times" will appear a synopsis of all 
the College activities for the year, 
scholastic, athletic and otherwise, so 
I will not go into that here. I would 
however like to state now that the 
results obtained by U.C.C. at Mat- 
riculation this year were excellent. 
Principal MacDermot and the staff 
are to be congratulated. 

It has been my privilege to have 
been Secretary of this Association for 
the past 15 years. During that period 
we have always been fortunate in 
having an excellent Board of Direc- 
tors for the O.B.A. This year we 
have, I believe, the most enthusiastic 
workers and the strongest Board 
during that time. 

Needless to say, there have been 
many changes during that time and 
the only one now on the Directorate 
that has been on continuously since 
I started is our Hon. President R. A. 
— or, as he is known to most of us, 
Bob — Laidlaw. Busy as he was, and is, 
he always had time to discuss and ad- 
vise on anything pertaining to U.C.C. 
It was not until you elected me as 
one of your representatives on the 
Board of Governors that I found out 
just how much he meant to the 
College. During the last year Mr. 
Laidlaw resigned as Chairman of the 
Board, a position he has more than 
admirably filled for many years. 
Fortunately he has consented to 
remain on the Board. 

To-day the College has been more 
than pleased to honour him by having 
his portrait hung beside other bene- 
factors and past Chairmen of the 
Board of Governors. On your behalf 
may I extend to Mr. Laidlaw our 
sincere thanks for his excellent guid- 
ance as Chairman of the Board and 
for his many generosities to the 
College and the Association. 

To his successor, Mr. Graeme 
Watson, we wish the best of luck 
and our loyal support. 

A tremendous amount of credit is 
from time to time given me for work 
in connection with the O.B.A. which 
is quite out of order. The main back- 
bone of the Association is our good 
friend and hard worker, Mrs. Faw- 
cett. How she accomplishes all she 
does is beyond me. Without her we 
cannot do, and we hope she may 
always be as happy to be with us as 
we are happy to have her. 

Last year we had at the College 
98 boys from England and other 
countries at war. This year we have 

even more. The Boarding Houses, have proven so helpful that they are 

both Upper School and Preparatory, now indispensable, 
are filled to capacity and a particu- ,,, T , . .

G. Y. Ormsby, 



The regional sub-committees of the 
executive responsible for out-of-town 
Old Boys' affairs have had more 
meetings, made contact with more 
Old Boys, discovered more addresses 
and done more services for Old Boys. 
When, as now, time is so precious, 
such doings might be a reprehensible 
waste. But they have been effective. 
The Association has more out-of-town 
members than ever, the College has 
more out-of-town boys than it has 
had for some years, this little maga- 
zine has contributions of interest from 
Old Boys out-of-town and even over- 
seas, and if plans now laid are success- 
fully carried out we shall have much 
more to report. The executive will 
feel satisfied only when something 
really tangible has been done for all 
these Old Boys who loyally support 
it from afar! 

Due to changes in personnel the 
committees have been re-arranged 
slightly, as below. Names without 
dates are those of masters. It is 
intended to subdivide the U.S.A. 

The Maritimes: — G. C. Andrew, 
Dr. Frederick C. Harrison ('98-'02), 
A. Neville Morine ('00-'03). 

Quebec: — James H. Biggar ('19- 
'26), George D. Kirkpatrick ('05-' 13), 
W. C. E. Wiseman. 

Mining District: — A. Geoffrey Ed- 
wards ('08-' 12), William G. Bassett 
T. Gibson, A. Kelso Roberts ('15-'16). 

South-Eastern Ontario : — Harold E. 
Orr, Howard Heintzman ('08-' 14), 
John R. Henderson ('30-'39), Wilson 
B. Stallworthy. 

South-Western Ontario: — H. Earl 
Elliott, Alan Harris, Jack May ('22- 
'30), Trevor Manning ('05-'ll). 

The Prairies: — Gordon McLaughlin 
('07-'10), John B. Aird ('31-'41), 
George Gait, J. Norman C. Sharpe. 

British Columbia: — R. Norman 
Beattie ('26-'29), Richard S. Eaton, 
Kenneth Haywood ('11-' 19), Camp- 
bell Parsons ('29-'37). 

U.S.A.:— John W. McCaul ('04- 
'09), Geoffrey C. Andrew, Robert W. 
Gouinlock ('02-' 10), Dr. Frederick C. 
Harrison ('98-'02), Foster Hewitt 
('15-'22), James J. Knights, James R. 
Robinson, Alan G. A. Stephen. 

The rest of America and the 
Empire: — A. Wyburn Eastmure ('06- 
'10), George N. Hargraft ('98-'02), 
Winston McCatty. 


The above title is misleading be- 
cause we have not had a dinner every 
year, but whenever we have had one 
we have called it the annual dinner. 
While similar associations have been 
maintaining their annual dinners we 
have not, partly because the custom 
of having a smoker has been revived, 
and partly because we had been 
hoping that the Governor-General 
would, as has long been the custom, 
honour us with his presence in his 
first year of office, which the war has 
prevented this time. 

Now at last an idea, long in dis- 
tilling, has matured — we like the 
metaphor for this topic! Other Old 
Boys' associations celebrate some 
great day in their school's history by 
holding on that fixed date dinners all 
over the world wherever a half-dozen 
or more or less Old Boys may gather 
together unashamed of their old 

school tie — even proud of it. We pro- 
pose to do the same. 

The date selected is February 16th, 
this year a Monday. It is the birthday 
of Lord Seaton, our founder, and will 
be known as Founder's Day. The 
date of the College's charter was in 
early September and the date of the 
first classes was not till 1830, the 
former out of season for dinners and 
the latter not to be told in Gath. 

So on Monday, February 16th, 
1942, the Old Boys propose to 
hold the first annual celebration of 
Founder's Day and have a dinner 
at the College that night. And it is 
hoped that Old Boys in Vancouver, 
Montreal, New York, London, Gib- 
raltar, somewhere in England, at an 
Eastern Canadian port, and every- 
where else, may band together to 
hold similar celebrations and exchange 
greetings with those in Toronto. 


On Friday, December 30th, J. H. 
Biggar ('19-'26) of the Quebec region- 
al committee showed some films of 
present-day life at the College to 
some Old Boys in the Montreal 

region. Present were: J. J. Creelman 
C92-'00), H. J. Hague (71-78), E. W. 
Francis ('13-'16), and G. M. Mac- 
donnell ('23-'26). 


The School has this year 631 boys 

which is 31 less than last year — 19 
fewer at the College, 12 at the Prep. — 
though there are more boarders than 
last year. To the general conditions 
of our times may be added the ex- 
planations that to accommodate the 

flood of boys from England last year 
the Prep, had to risk overcrowding 
and that this year the average age 
of the Upper School is lower because 
older boys have no time now for an 
"extra" year. Stewards and Prefects 
are younger than usual, but having 
come up the School together as a 


body, are now an unusually homo- 
geneous group. They are D. C. 
Corbett, A. K. Stuart, F. L. Clement, 
J. L. Fichter, R. W. Spratt, A. B. 
Little (rugby), M. B. Osborne (hoc- 
key), M. W. Bremer (cricket), D. G. 
Herron (battalion), P. R. Arthur 
(College Times). 

Messrs. Macdonald and Owen left 
the Prep, to join the R.C.A.F. and 
the Queen's Own Regt. respectively. 
In their places come Messrs. A. L. 
Jackson from the Principalship of 
Highland Creek School; R. S. Jack- 
son, B.A. (Manitoba) from St. John's 
College School, Winnipeg, and Mr. 
A. H. S. Cocks, B.A. (Cantab.), from 
Harrison College, Bermuda. Mr. 
Shearer left the Upper School to go 
on Active Service but so far he has 
the misfortune to fail his medical 
board. His place as Junior House- 
master has been filled by Mr. Wise- 
man from the Prep. Mr. Renny has 
left to become Headmaster of War- 
wick Academy in Bermuda. Mr. 
C. R. Arthur from Manitoba, a 
graduate of the Ontario College of 
Education, has replaced him. Mr 
H. G. Kettle fell ill in the early 
summer and is at the Mountain 
Sanatorium, Hamilton, Ontario; 
meanwhile Dr. Bassett looks after 
Jackson's and Mr. W. W. Armstrong, 
B.A. (Toronto) and a graduate of the 
Ontario College of Education, looks 
after the Art and Crafts Department 
and teaches modern languages. Miss 
Carlisle, dietitian at the Prep, mar- 
ried xMr. E. S. W. Belyea. 

Shortly after term began, Mr. Law 
fell ill. As the winter term begins, 
however, he will return to his teach- 
ing, but since his health will not 
permit him to take heavy duties, 
Mr. Biggar will replace him in 

Seaton's House, Mr. Knights taking 
over Martland's. The Principal has 
been asked to do some organizational 
work throughout Canada for the 
government. He will therefore be on 
leave for three months while Mr. 
McKenzie substitutes for him. 

School Work 

Except for the winning of the 
Bishop Strachan Scholarship in Greek, 
Latin, English, and French at Trinity 
College by I. M. Owen, nothing 
spectacular was achieved at Matricu- 
lation; the number who qualified 
for honour courses at university was 
above average, which is an indication 
of good. 

As a result of the re-organization of 
school curriculum by the Provincial 
Government, all universities now 
accept German instead of Latin, and 
most accept Geography. U.C.C. has 
long given the opportunity to take 
German and even Greek. Consider- 
ably more Geography is now studied 
in the lower forms and will be ex- 
tended to higher forms in progression. 


The First Rugby Team began its 
Little Big Four by being defeated by 
Ridley, 28 to 5, at St. Catharines. 
Morale revived, however, when they 
turned around and defeated both 
St. Andrew's and T.C.S. Our cap- 
tain weighs 205 lbs., is 6 feet 4 inches 
in height, and bears the name Little. 
The vice-captain, kicker and plunging 
half, who also called the signals, was 
Osborne. The team was perhaps 
too dependent on one man, and "Red" 
Gilmour was not able to give so much 
time to the coaching this year. There 
is some discussion about how to 

amend the system on which rugby 
is organized to achieve the high 
standard of our hockey. The 145 lb. 
team had a very successful season, 
coached by J. C. Lougheed ('35-'40), 
now a Medical student. Excellent 
material abounds for next year's 
Firsts. After a three-cornered tie 
with Jackson's and Wedd's, Seaton's 
won the Senior House League ; Mart- 
land's won the Junior. 

The College soccer team won its 
only outside games against T.C.S. 
This year the number of House soccer 
teams rose to eight; Martland's won 
the league. 

Among an enormous entry, Michael 
Bremner won the Senior Cross Coun- 
try, E. D. G. Davis the Intermediate, 
J. Richard G. Davidson the Junior. 
Old Boys will know the fathers of 
two of these. The Senior Kicking 
Competition was won by M. B. 
Osborne, the Intermediate by B. 
Little, and the Junior by S. P. Burden. 
The season of In-Between season 
sports in the pool and gym, volley- 
ball, basketball, and water-polo, is 
now pretty well established. An 
inter-House swimming meet was won 
by McHugh's. 

The Anniversary Game with 
St. Andrew's 

On Saturday, October 27th, 1941, 
Upper Canada College and St. An- 
drew's College played their fortieth 
annual rugby game. To celebrate the 
event the game was held in the after- 
noon so that an unusually large 
number of Old Boys of both schools 
could come to watch. In courtesy to 
the visitors one of our goals was 
painted red and white and the pro- 
gramme was also printed partly in 
the same colours. Our team pre- 

sented the S.A.C. team with an 
enormous birthday cake — but the 
device was unsuccessful in that it was 
not eaten till afterwards! Several 
members of the original teams of 1901 
turned up. John F. Lash ('98-'02) 
kicked off for U.C.C., supported by 
Len Morrison ('00-'02). They were 
opposed by H. B. Housser, captain, 
and K. H. Follett of the 1901 St. 
Andrew's team. We should have 
liked to see the four of them fight 
it out, but they modestly left the 
field for their successors. U.C.C. of 
1941 then beat St. Andrew's 6-0. 
The Old Boys' Association and the 
Ladies' Guild of St. Andrew's then 
invited both our teams to a reception 
at the Badminton Club. 

Our own observation was that, 
judging by present appearances, 
teams were heavier in 1901 — in parts. 

In a general way the boys continue 
all their many activities from cracking 
chestnuts to learning Chinese, from 
discussing agriculture with Miss Agnes 
MacPhail to singing in the Annual 
Carol Service, from revolutionizing 
the format of the College Times to 
writing plays for the Prep. Christmas 
shows. Prize Day was again held in 
the gymnasium, with the Rt. Hon. 
Malcolm Macdonald as guest of 
honour; nearly a thousand people 
were present. 

War Work 
The effort made by the College as 
an institution to contribute something 
for the needs of the hour was de- 
scribed in the last issue. All that work 
has been continued and developed 
and here there is only to be added a 
few particulars. 


Dress parades are the rule, not the 
exception, in the Battalion. Its regu- 
lar parade is now on Tuesdays, while 
on Thursdays the older boys have 
their classes in camouflage, map- 
reading, A.R.P., chemical warfare, 
and the rest, and younger boys have 
club meetings. This has not inter- 
fered with sports appreciably because 
School teams can practise after 4.15 
and House Leagues being on Mon- 
days, Wednesdays and Thursdays, no 
longer need days of intermission after 
their gruesome encounters. The War 
Savings and the saving of scrap have 
been regularized. Each Monday 
every boy reports his saving on a 
ballot which preserves secrecy to 
avoid invidious comparisons but pro- 
duces a regular weekly record of the 
total to encourage "school spirit" 
along this line. 

Two contributions are being made 
by U.C.C. in special ways. Nearly a 
hundred boys from Great Britain are 
being educated here on terms which 
represent a burden that the College 
could not be expected to bear in 
normal times. The other contribution 
if that of the Principal's time. That 
the government pressed so keenly for 
his services is a compliment to him 
and indirectly to his work here. 
That he can be spared for the time 
speaks eloquently of the state of 
organization established at the Col- 
lege itself. 

Finally, U.C.C. must continue to 
do its part as before "that," in the 
words of our founder's prayer, "there 
may never be wanting a succession 
of persons duly qualified for the 
service of God and of their country." 


{Last year a group of younger boys was formed, called the History Club, to 
study the history of U.C.C. This article is one of their products. — Ed.) 

The first thing that happens to a 
New-boy when he enters U.C.C. is 
that he is placed in a House. If he 
is a day-boy, he is made a member 
of Martlands, Jacksons, or McHughs. 
If he is a boarder, it is Seatons or 
Wedds. Unless he is a genius at 
sports, good enough for School teams, 
his House will govern all he does for 
exercise. Each House has as many 
teams as it can form to play the 
accepted games of the College, and 
it is a very peculiar boy who can find 
no place on any of them. This is the 
chief function of a House; it gives 
every member of it a chance to play 

games with his contemporaries in 
ability, age and weight. 

Each House has a Senior House 
Master. He is the one master with 
whom a boy is connected through his 
entire school career, and he is the 
first to be consulted about any per- 
sonal problem, not connected with 
school-work. To help him with the 
organization and administration, he 
appoints the head of the House, who 
is a Steward, and five Junior Prefects, 
who have wide disciplinary powers. 
Their principal duty is to force 
unwilling but physically fit boys to 
play games. 


The House system, of course, means 
much more to the boarders than to the 
day-boys. The two boarder houses 
have separate buildings, Seatons on 
the east side of the quad, Wedds on 
the west. Inside these residences the 
boarders have a complete community 
life; they have play-rooms and 
smokers ; they give occasional dances ; 
they administer their severe class 
system, which has the prefects as aris- 
tocracy, the seniors as the upper 
middle-class, the neutrals as the lower 
middle-class, and the new-boys as 
the underprivileged workers. Through 
all this, the House system attempts 
to give training which will help when 
education is finished. 

To us the House system is so 
important that we find it hard to 
believe there was a time when it did 
not exist, and that it is, in fact, a 
recent development. It was started 
by Dr. Grant in the autumn of 1920 
in order to facilitate his new rule 
to make games compulsory. Originally 
there were four Houses. Seatons was 
made up of all boarders who came 
from the Prep, or whose parents lived 
in Toronto. Wedds had all the other 
boarders. Jacksons had all the day- 
boys from the Prep., and Martlands 
took the others. At first the boarders 
lived in the second and third floors 
of the main building and were 
governed by five school prefects, but 
in 1924 Seatons and Wedds lived on 
the opposite sides of the prayer hall, 
and each House was given a Senior 
and a Junior resident House Master. 
In 1932 the boarders moved to their 
new buildings and began to enjoy 
the advantages of community life. 
The day-boy Houses did not have 
prefects in the beginning; in 1926 

the older boys were made Seniors in 
their Houses, and given limited 
powers. They succeeded so well in 
the use of their small authority that 
in 1931 they were made prefects, and 
the day-boy Houses then had a 
similar organization to the boarder 
Houses. In 1932 the greater number 
of day-boys taking part in games 
made it necessary to establish the 
third day-boy House, McHughs. At 
that time the method of allotment 
of boys to the Houses was reformed, 
and the present system of attempting 
to divide the talent evenly among 
Houses was adopted. 

The House system was one of Dr. 
Grant's greatest contributions to the 
College. It had three purposes: all 
boys could play games; all boys would 
have one master — their House Master 
— with whom they would associate 
throughout their time at the College; 
the boarders could have their com- 
munity life, and a more home-like 
atmosphere. Many people feel that 
House spirit interferes with School 
spirit, especially since the founding in 
'38 of the Senior Prefects' Cup, which 
is given to the House judged best on 
a system of points, points being given 
for participation of members in School 
activities, as well as for champion- 
ships won by the House. However, 
since boys playing on School teams 
are ineligible for House teams, and 
as they get more credit for playing 
for the School than they would for 
the House, we feel that there is no 
noticeable change in the attitude 
towards the School. 

When it began, the House system 
was not considered very important; 
the Times gave its beginning two 
small paragraphs in the Editorial. 


Now it is the most important of the 
trimmings which make U.C.C. so 
much more interesting and so much 

better than an ordinary provincial 
High School. 

E. A. McCulloch ('35-'—) 


When the Editor asked me for an 
article, the title he suggested was 
"On Leaving School." However, when 
I started to work on it I discovered 
that the mere act of leaving was less 
to the point than the consequent 
condition of having left. Hence the 
present title, which is important as 
being the only existing remnant of 
the original version of my article. 

It is an odd sensation to be no 
longer a part of life at the College. 
When one pays it a visit one is too 
familiar a part of the general scenery 
to be particularly noticed ; and yet one 
sees the business of the College being 
carried on quite successfully without 
one's help. One is, in short, a ghost 
before one's time; indeed, I have often 
felt that an eerie, greenish glow would 
give me artistic verisimilitude. 

But of course one is often noticed 
by individuals, and then the questions 
begin. Painstaking analysis shows 
that there are actually only four 
standard questions asked of new Old 
Boys now at the University by old 
Present Boys, and as I have now 
heard them all many times I am in a 
position to list them with suggested 
answers. The latter should be care- 

fully committed to memory and re- 
cited in a gentle montone when 

1. What are you doing here? I 
want another chance, and have de- 
cided to enrol as a new boy. I want 
to apologize to Mr. Mackenzie for 
having been so rough with him in 
class. I started out for the University, 
but habit brought me here. I'm going 
to the Infirmary for milk and biscuits. 
(The last is probably true and should 
therefore be used only in emergencies.) 

2. What are you doing with your- 
self these days? (To this one there 
are already two standard answers in 
general use, for Arts and Engineering 
students respectively.) Having a 
marvellous time and doing no work. 
Having a hell of a time and doing a 
hell of a lot of work. 

3. (Used by questioner after he has 
ascertained victim's course.) What'll 
that make you when you've finished? 
A graduate. An office-boy. A corpse. 
A corporal. 

4. How does it feel to be an Old 
Boy? Hell, this is where I started. 
Do you want to go through this again ? 
That's what I thought. 

I. M. Owen ('33-'41) 



The Chamberlain umbrella being no 
longer a ready symbol of what is 
wrong with the world, people are apt 
to jeer now at the old school tie. This 
tendency has, however, been over- 
done. As the outward and visible sign 
of an inner evil, it is not the old school 
tie but the coloured party shirt that 
is the modern badge of shame. 

In our public life cliques do never- 
theless exist. But very often among 
elected or permanent officials it is not 
clannish loyalty to the old school 
which shapes new appointments or 
directs events. A small group of 
diverse backgrounds but long domi- 
nated by certain personalities or a 
single narrow point of view will strive 
to perpetuate its own exclusive con- 
trol. In so doing the old school or 
university may play a little or no part. 
As potential rivals, men qualified to 
serve their country will be barred by 
one means or another. And if Minis- 
ters are otherwise too preoccupied, a 
bureaucracy grows up — glib, urbane, 
seemingly able — which runs affairs 
of state to suit its own departmental 
convenience or subtly adapts them 
to its own collective ambitions. The 
illusion is created that it alone is 
competent — and a pretence of public 
interest thus covers a quiet monopoly 
of personal power. 

After this war we shall be vexed by 
intractable problems of government 
and administration. Private founda- 
tions must be quick to remove any 
stigma they may unjustly bear. Their 
mission will be to defend islands of 
individuality in a human sea of en- 
croaching uniformity. And it is these 
precisely that self-perpetuating bur- 

eaucracies resent and must seek to 
destroy. From the old school tie 
democracy has thus more to gain 
than to lose. Hitler and Mussolini 
may flaunt their shirts. It is from 
Harrow and Groton that have come 
the two great leaders of the free. 

Nothing in an official or a politician 
is more rare than independence of 
judgment impelled by moral courage 
against current fashion on the Right 
or the Left. Yet without these 
qualities democracy can never fulfil 
itself. And to promote them will be 
the merit of great schools which take 
their stand on tried and tested prin- 
ciple. The other day a Chinese states- 
man and philosopher attempted to 
prove that his heroic country was a 
real democracy because it had brought 
about a general levelling-down of 
classes. Yet the classless society 
(apart from the small ruling caste) 
is the mark not of a democracy but 
of dictatorship — a truth known to 
Burke a century and a half ago. For 
it smooths the path of the despot, 
whether he be one man or many 
little men. 

Through an adequate supply of 
scholarships, private foundations 
should offer the brightest an oppor- 
tunity more nearly equal to that of 
the privileged. But to worship the 
fetish of equality — whether it be in a 
democratic or a totalitarian order — 
is to be the creature of the mass-mind. 
For liberty rather than equality is 
the prime basis of democracy. And 
to maintain liberty against domestic 
bureaucrats in peace, as against 
foreign tyrants in war, is the task 
for which private schools are best 


fitted to prepare the leaders of the 
future. Will they measure up to the 
challenge of the new age? That 
depends on the spirit by which they 

are animated. But the day of the old 
school tie need not be at an end. It 
may in fact have only just begun.

A. V. DUNN, V.G. 

{From the Toronto Evening Telegram, October 18th, 1941) 

In the museum of the Dominion 
Archives at Ottawa some years ago 
I noticed a card which stated that 
the Victoria Cross beside it, won by 
a Canadian soldier in the South 
African War of 1899-1901, was the 
first V.C. granted to a Canadian. As 
a matter of fact several V.C.'s were 
won by Canadians in South Africa, 
and the first Victoria Cross to be 
awarded a Canadian was granted to 
a young Toronto-born man, Lieut. 
Alexander Roberts Dunn, for his 
gallant conduct in the charge of the 
Light Brigade at Balaclava, Russia, 
in 1856 — the year in which Queen 
Victoria first bestowed that highest 

He was a son of the Hon. J. H. 
Dunn, Receiver-General of Upper 
Canada, and born in 1833, at his 
father's home on Catharine (now 
Adelaide) Street in what was still the 
town of York. Young Dunn entered 
Upper Canada College in 1844, when 
that school and its grounds covered 
the King-John-Adelaide-Simcoe 
street block. 

Dunn Saved Them 
Today Dunn's sword, cross, oil 
portrait and other mementoes are 
proudly displayed at present Upper 
Canada College, whose old bell in the 
tower which called Dunn to school 97 
years ago, still summons the boys. 
He would be surprised to see hundreds 

of the lads clad in blue and white 
sweaters playing football in the 
spacious grounds, for that was not 
an organized game in his day. 

In due course young Dunn's father 
bought him a commission in that 
smart regiment, the 11th Hussars, in 
England. It went to the Crimea, 
where Marshal Budenny and his 
Russian cavalry are bravely fighting 
the Germans. But Russia was a foe 
in those days. And so it came about 
that Lieut. Dunn, of Toronto, rode 
in the Charge of the Light Brigade, 
immortalized in Tennyson's poem. 

A movie play showing the charge 
was filmed some years ago, but one 
of the finest still pictures of that 
epic ride is Caton Woodville's. Full 
of action, it shows Lord Cardigan, 
that beau ideal of the light horseman, 
leading his picturesque array of 697 
hussars, lancers and light dragoons, 
lances and sabres in hand, in a furious 
assault upon a whole Russian army. 

In the forefront, close to the 
haughty general, Cardigan, gallops 
Captain Nolan who, if his handsome 
head had not been blown off by a 
cannonball, might have explained 
the mystery of how "someone had 

"Magnificent, but it is not war!" 
exclaimed a French general, as the 
brigade had swept past him on its 
suicidal charge. 


Kinglake, the English historian of 
the Crimean war, relates that the 
V.C. placed at the disposal of the 
11th Hussars was unanimously 
awarded to Dunn, the only cavalry 
officer to obtain this distinction. 

Describing Dunn's deed, Rev. Dr. 
Henry Scadding, who had taught 
young Dunn at U.C.C., said: "Six 
feet three inches in stature, a most 
powerful and most skilful swordsman 
and a stranger to fear, was Lieut. 
Dunn. Old troopers of the 11th 
Hussars long told with kindling eyes 
how the young lieutenant, seeing 
Sergeant Bentley of his own regiment 
attacked from behind by several 
Russian lancers, dashed in and cut 
them down. He saved Sergeant Bond 
and Private Levitt from Russian 
hussars by the same strong arm." 

To the enthusiasm inspired by 
Dunn's reputation was mainly due 
the formation in Canada, in 1858, 
of that British regular corps, the 
Hundredth, the Prince of Wales 

Royal Canadian Regiment. It was 
raised partly through Dunn's efforts 
and he was gazetted its first major, 
becoming its lieuterant-colonel when 
he had barely completed his 27th 

Impatient with the inaction of 
barrack life, Dunn got transferred to a 
command in India where he speedily 
attracted the attention of Lord 
Napier, who took him to Abyssinia — 
not to fight Italians, but King 
Theodore and the Ethiopians. Out 
hunting deer one day in Abyssinia, 
Dunn was accidentally killed by the 
discharge of his own rifle and deeply 
mourned by everyone. 

The Toronto schoolboy of nearly 
100 years ago was buried at a lonely 
spot in a railed enclosure, where a 
gravestone bears the inscription: — 
"In memory of A. R. Dunn, V.C, 
Col. 33rd Regt., who died at Senate 
on 25th Jan., 1868, aged 34 years and 
7 months." 


Master-mind, Jackie May, had no 
trouble in inspiring his Old Boys to a 
6-3 victory over the College First 
Team when the titanic clash took 
place on Friday, December 20. As 
usual, a good-sized crowd turned out 
and was well entertained. 

The game itself, though not as 
high-scoring as some previous con- 
tests, was probably a better game, 
and for that reason Foster Hewitt did 
not hand out a single penalty all 
evening to the evident disappoint- 
ment of some of the crowd, who were 

hoping to see the whole Old Boys' 
Team penalized at once. 

For the College, Mike Bremner 
scored in the first period and Whitley 
and Humphries in the third period. 
For the Old Boys George Mara had 
the best batting average with two 
goals and an assist on each of the 
goals scored by that grand old man, 
Norm Urquhart. Easily the high- 
lights of the game (according to 
Norm) were his two goals. On each 
occasion he got the puck off the ice, 
thus confounding all the spectators, 


most of whom seemed to doubt even 
his ability to skate up the ice more 
than once. Other Old Boys' goals 
were scored by Bob Suckling, who got 
a painful bruise in the face during the 
third period, and Jack Stafford, who 
displayed his usual flashy hockey. 
Johnny Jarvis and Bud Lawson both 
turned in good efforts in goal. 

Preceding the feature attraction 
was a short of the Prep. Blues vs. 
Whites in which the Blues triumphed 
3-1. In between periods Virginia 
Wilson, Eleanor O'Meara and Sandy 
McKechnie entertained with fancy 
skating exhibitions. Also on display 

was the Battalion Band, which 
sounded and looked better than it 
has ever managed to do before. 

For those interested in that sort 
of thing, the line-up of the main game 
is given below: 

Old Boys — Jarvis, Lawson, Ridler, 
Aird, Waylett, Foulds, Leake, Simp- 
son, Gibson, Mara, Henderson, Ur- 
quhart, Suckling, Douglas, and Staf- 

Present Boys — Lougheed, Whitley, 
Horkins, Reid, Little, Herron, Os- 
borne, Bebell, Bremner, Humphries, 
Wasteneys, Burden, Jeffs, Grainger, 
Bryson, and Rawlinson. 

R. W. L. Laidlaw ('31-'40) 




Since you have been good enough 
to entertain me, during a tour of 
Orderly Officer duty, with the July 
issue of the Old Times, I might show 
my gratitude by supplying a few 
additions to your list of Old Boys on 
Active Service. These are largely 
promotions of course, many of which 
you will have received from other 
sources, but I hope some will help 

One can find Old Boys in every part 
of England and there are even a few 
in Scotland. Within the last few 
months I have met representatives in 
every branch of the Navy, Army, and 
Air Force. Unfortunately regulations 
prevent any mention of their jobs 
but from personal observation and 
reading that the "S.M." is in the 
Home Guards, I think you may 

assume that the College is supplying 
a cog or two in every part of Britain's 
military machine. 

When we are not beating off mythi- 
cal invaders or chasing imaginary 
parachutists we spend a bit of time 
playing the local teams at cricket. 
Yesterday we beat our neighbourhood 
Fire Department by 101 to 77. The 
high spot of the match was a brilliant 
47 by Doug Deeks which included a 
6 to leg which knocked a few tiles off 
the pavilion. We feel sure the missing 
tiles will shortly be added to the 
villagers' fund of bomb stories. Less 
notable performances were a soft 
catch dropped by Johnnie Clarke and 
a futile effort on my part to do a 
"Logie" at point. I spent most of the 
afternoon diving for balls which had 
passed me a second or two earlier. 
Lyman Crawford Brown and Don 


McMurrich turned in very useful 
games and Peter Bennett was the 
mainstay as usual. Peter is captain 
of our team as he is the only one who 
can turn out in white flannels, blazer 
and boots. He looks very nice when 
he goes out for the toss but the effect 
is spoiled when the rest of us troop 
out in everything from khaki shorts 
to battle-dress. 

Geordie Beal is doing an excellent 
job managing our battalion baseball 
team. He is accepting all bets on the 

outcome of the Divisional champion- 
ships and at the moment of writing, 
with the finals well on, appears to 
have a good thing. 

Here are the changes and additions 
to your list. {Listed elsewhere. — Ed.) 

I have noticed the Old Times in 
many messes over here and can assure 
you that all Old Boys find it interest- 
ing reading. 

D.F. B. Corbett('26-'32), 
Lieut., 48th Highlanders. 


H. L. Harshaw ('16-'17) works in 
the same office with me in the bank. 
Jack Carter is on Active Service with 
the Navy. And that about exhausts 
my list. 

As for the Macdonnells, the diffi- 
culty is the same as it used to be at 
school, to establish how many of 
them there are, and where they all 
are at any given time. As you may 
recall, it established after much 
research that around 1925-6 there 
were at least five of them at the 
School, and the simple expedient was 
adopted of numbering them from I to 
V. But this proved only moderately 
satisfactory because they would all 
answer to any given number as well 
as to "Hi! or any loud cry." 

To be more specific, Macdonnell I 
(D. J.) is in Ottawa, engaged in 
accounting work, although he varies 
this at times by teaching Japanese 
(he teaches them English). (He did; 
this was August. — Ed.) 

Macdonnell II (R. M.) is with the 
Department of External Affairs, in 
Washington. He is married and the 
proud father of twins. 

Macdonnell IV (J. G. T.) is pur- 
suing a banking career in Pasadena, 
California. He too is married and has 
a son. 

Macdonnell V (J. B.) is with the 
Imperial Bank in Timmins. Having 
achieved a brilliant athletic record by 
coming first (or last, I forget which) 
in the New Boys' Obstacle race at 
school, he recently added a second 
notch to his record, being mentioned 
by the Timmins press as the star 
scorer when the bank team defeated 

N. S. Macdonnell, who was at the 
School several years later, was also 
in Pasadena when I last heard of him. 

George Macdonnell (III). 

(George is at the head office of the 
Bank of Montreal.— Ed.)

CONN SMYTHE, '07-'09 

Conn Smythe is an Old Boy whose 
connection with the College has been 
maintained through the College's 
major sport, hockey. Its speed, action 
and spirit suit him. He left U.C.C. 
too young to have played on its 
teams but at S.P.S. he was captain of 
Varsity Junior Team that won the 
O.H.A. championship. He inter- 
rupted his studies when more action 
was to be found — in France. 

He began as a gunner and ended as 
a major in the 40th Battery, C.F.A., 
with the M.C. Meanwhile, still more 
action was promised as the R.F.C. 
was formed. He flew, came down and 
was captured. He must have found 
the inactivity of prison camp un- 
congenial, to say the least. So he 
escaped, but was caught when his 
companion stopped to repair his 
trousers that had been caught on the 

wire. His flying career earned a 
mention in despatches. 

In peacetime he finished his en- 
gineering course, built up a business, 
swam and played golf. Seemingly 
irked by such relative idleness, he 
offered to coach the Varsity hockey 
teams, all three of them at once — 
Senior, Intermediate, and Junior. 
The Seniors played simultaneously 
in the Senior O.H.A. and the Inter- 
collegiate. They could win both. 
One of his teams as the "Varsity 
Grads" won the amateur champion- 
ship of the world. 

Hockey got faster. He was one of 
those pacing it. He organized the 
N.Y. Rangers when professional hoc- 
key spread to the States. And in 
Toronto he was the dynamo that 
caused the organization of the Maple 
Leafs and the building of the 
Gardens. In the summers he finds 
race-horses fast enough to substitute 
for hockey. The colours of his stable 
are blue and white. 

The lover of action also likes to get 
a word in from time to time. As one 
coached by him in Varsity days says, 
"He may or may not be a subtle 
strategist, but he puts spirit into 
the team. It's what he says." Referees 
and rival managers also know that he 
"says things." 

Now he is Major of the 30th Bat- 
tery, 7th Toronto Regt., R.C.A. 
James Boeckh ('23-'30). known as 
a golfer, is one of his lieutenants. 
Good luck to the sportsmen!

unable to locate. 

Charles V. Gladwell ('29-'32) has 
left wide expanses of the prairies to 
take up his domicile in more confined 
surroundings. He is now with 
Clarkson-Gordon-Dillworth and Nash 
and is resident at the Central Y.M. 
C.A. in Toronto if my informant is 
not in error. 

William L. Hipperson ('29-'32) is 
at Osgoode Hall for his last year. He 
graduated from Queen's with his B.A. 
Future plans are not known as at 

Dr. Hervey L. Jackes may be said 
to be cutting up as usual. As one of 
Regina's most prominent surgeons he 
is especially busy at this time owing 
to added work he is performing for 
the military authorities. When at 
home he lives at 2258 Cornwall St. 

George A. Johnson ('09-' 11), I am 
unable to locate. 

John H. Read ('21-'24) is with the 
Ryan Air Training School at Moose 
Jaw. I am endeavouring to get 
further news of his activities and will 
forward it if and when I receive it. 

Arthur T. Spohn ('97-'98) is busy 
as the Administrator of the Estates of 
the Mentally Incompetent. His home 
is at 2836 Retallack St. 

Albert E. Whitmore ('94-'95) con- 
tinues as one of Regina's most 
prominent business men. When he 
rests it is at 2208 Smith St. Just 
recently he has been sick, but is now 
on the way to recovery. 

Norman E. Whitmore ('23-'27) is a 
lieutenant in the Navy and is seeing 
much active service on the high seas. 
Last reports indicate that he is in 
good health and thriving. 

Lieut. -Col. Henry T. Goodeve is 
at present with the Canadian Corps 
overseas in the capacity of Paymaster. 

J. W. Maltby has recently moved 
to Saskatoon, where he is living at 
105 Ninth St. He is with the T. 
Eaton Co. 

By the way, Dr. Jackes tells me 
that he was the fourth generation of 
his family to attend Upper Canada 
and he anticipates that the fifth 
generation will soon be at the School. 
How's that for a family connection?

Blackouts and threat of air raids 
have brought out the fighting spirit 
in Vancouver Old Boys — probably a 
little of the old spirit of the U.C.C. 
boys that garrisoned Toronto against 
the Fenians, back in '66. 

All of us have come through the 
blackouts all right, though it must be 
admitted that the first night was 
pretty hectic. You had to toss up 
between using all your blankets to 
black out the windows, thus freezing 
in bed, or leaving the blankets on the 
bed and chancing a visit from an 
A.R.P. warden, fine $25 and costs, 

William H. Grindlay ('01-'03) who 
is with Armstrong and Laing Ltd. in 
the insurance business here, is one 
of the men who have been getting 
out with the A.R.P. helmet to prac- 
tise for anticipated air raids. 

Dr. Alfred K. Haywood ('00-'04) 
has had his worries, too. As general 
superintendent of the Vancouver 
General Hospital he has been co- 
operating with civic officials in black- 
ing out the windows of one of the 
Dominion's largest hospitals. 

Day that Japan declared war 
on us, Vancouver's Mayor, J. W. 
Cornett, called in another Old Boy 
to help him. He appointed Col. G. H. 
Kirkpatrick ('88-'92) to be director 
of Air Raid Precautions for Van- 
couver. Col. Kirkpatrick recently 
retired from the post of O.C. 2nd 
Battalion Seaforth Highlanders of 
Canada here. He is still active as 
president of the Vancouver branch 
of the Canadian Red Cross. 

Busy with war work is Richard S. 
Davidson ('20-'22), who is directing 
steel fabricating operations at the 

plant of the Dominion Bridge Co. 
here. The steel is used in the con- 
struction of deep sea vessels at local 
shipyards. His wife is the former 
Lillooet K. Green, a member of the 
editorial staff of the Vancouver Daily 

Norman W. Robinson is directing 
the large project of Wartime Housing 
Ltd. here, building homes for ship- 
yard workers on the North Shore. 

Two Old Boys are preparing for the 
forthcoming Second Victory Loan. 
Kenneth L. Patton ('00-'04) is a 
member of the committee to handle 
special names. He came here three 
years ago to take the post of manager 
of James Richardson & Sons, brokers. 
John L. Burns ('06-'09) will handle 
Nelson, B.C., and vicinity for the 
Victory Loan. He was on a business 
trip in Eastern Canada in December, 
and though he had very little time in 
Toronto, he found time to drive 
around the College grounds while he 
was there. 

Major Henry I. Bird ('04-' 10) has 
been engaged as counsel to the 
Commissioner on the Royal Inquiry 
into the Workmen/s Compensation 
Act of B.C. under the chairmanship 
of the Hon. Mr. Justice Sloan. 

Edward B. McMaster ('89-'93) 
is one of the three senior officers who 
were with the Irish Fusiliers when it 
was formed here. He has applied 
for service again in this war, and 
though he has been turned down 
three times so far, he is not pessi- 
mistic about his further chances. 
His brother, James A. McMaster 
('89-'91), is also living here. He re- 
tired from business five years ago, 
for reasons of health. 


Frederick M. Rutter ('95-'99), who 
is assistant to the assistant general 
manager of the C.P.R. in Vancouver, 
has ended a term of office as chairman 
of the Transportation and Customs 
Bureau of the Vancouver Board of 

Several Old Boys took the oppor- 
tunity to visit friends in the city 
during the Christmas holidays. Lieut. 
Arthur M. James ('29-'33) who is 
stationed with a well-known Ontario 
rifle regiment in the coast defences 
on Vancouver Island, has been visit- 
ing his former room-mate in Wedd's 
House, Capt. A. D. ("Dood") Walk- 
em. Visiting his parents has been 
William Turner, one of the younger 
Old Boys, who only left U.C.C. a 
couple of years ago. He is taking 
second year mining engineering at 
U. of T. 

Reginald Shelly ('31-'32) dropped 
by to see me and show me an album 
of photos taken at the College when 
he and his brothers were there. He 
came into town for the Christmas 
holidays, and has now returned to 
his work with the Pioneer Timber Co. 
at Port McNeill 200 miles up the 
coast on Vancouver Island. 

His brother, Leon Shelly ('24-'26), is 
managing director of Motion Skreen- 
ad Co. here. His two latest jobs 
have been a colour movie on coffee 
growing in Colombia, and a sports 
short on British Columbia called 
4 'Evergreen Play land." 

Dr. Alfred H. Spohn ('97-'99) has 
been elected vice-president of the 
B.C. Medical Association. His son, 
Peter Spohn ('33-'35), is in his final 
year of Medicine*at U. of T. 

Around Town 

William M. Stark ('OO-'Ol) has 
returned from an extended stay in 
Los Angeles. He recently took out 
his membership in the Early Birds, 
an association of pioneer aviators. He 
flew an old Curtiss biplane at 
Hastings Park here in 1912. 

Back from England is Henry 
McDonell Ridley ('19-'22). He is 
active in volunteer work with the 
Canadian Red Cross. 

James H. Watson ('84-'89) is 
general agent for the London & 
Provincial Marine and General Insur- 
ance Co. 

John B. Sutherland ('21-'22) is with 
the B.C. Division of the Canadian 
Manufacturers' Association. He is 
married and is the father of two girls. 

Douglas B. Deeks ('18-'27) has left 
the Deeks Sand and Gravel Co. here 
to return to Toronto. 

In retirement and doing occasional 
fishing is Alexander L. Gartshore 
('84-'87), who was formerly with the 
Canada Life Assurance Co. when 
W. B. Ferrie was manager. 

California is the home of Nelson 
("Si") Dunn ('96-'01), who is with 
the Winchester Arms Manufacturing 
Co. at Palo Alto. 

Ellory G. Langley ('06-'08) is sales 
executive with Neon Products of 
Western Canada Ltd. 

Ghent Davis ('05-' 12) has been 
for some time a partner in the Van- 
couver law firm of Davis, Pugh, 
Hossie, Lett, & Marshall. It is one 
of the oldest firms in the province, 
and was founded by his father, the 
late E. P. Davis, K.C. (76-78). 

Working toward his doctorate in 
psychology is Oliver Lacey ('30-'31), 
who is senior assistant in the Depart- 
ment of Psychology at Cornell Uni- 


versity and expects to get his degree 
this spring. 

Jacob A. H. Irving f01-'04) is 
managing director of Hedlund's Ltd., 
and one of the founders of the firm. 
Formerly with the Dominion Bank 
here, he is married and has one 

William Martin, B.C.L. (Oxon.) 
('99-'04) has retired from law practice 
and is living in West Point Grey. 

U.C.C. Masters Here 
Two of the College's best known 
masters have been through here 
recently — Mr. Ralph Law, house- 
master of Seaton's, and Commander 
J. M. De Marbois, R.N. 

Military Notes 
W. S. D. Prittie ('99-'02) left busi- 
ness at the outbreak of war to become 
chief engineer at the Jericho Air 
Station of the R.C.A.F., with the rank 
of Flight-Sergeant. He was a captain 
in the Engineers in the last war. 
One brother, F. H. Prittie ('97-'00), 
is a research chemist in the U.S. 
Government service at Sacramento, 
California, and another, R. D. Prittie, 
is president of the Northern Wood 
Preservers at Port Arthur, Ont. 

Waiting for his commission in the 
R.C.A.F. is Harold Shelly ('31-'32). 
He is chief ground instructor at 
Elementary Air Training School No. 
18 at Boundary Bay. 

His brother, Bill Shelly ('28-'31) 
has been promoted to Flying Office, 
and is now taking the instructor's 
course at Trenton, Ont. He joined 
the R.C.A.F. last summer.

the R.C.A. to join the staff at the 
Canadian Staging Camp, Base Tran- 
sit Depot, Third Division Infantry 
Reinforcement Unit. 

Lieut. William S. Huckvale ('22- 
'24), of Kimberley, B.C., has been 
stationed with the R.C.A.M.C. in 
Vancouver during the fall. He is 
married and has one daughter. 

Pat Keatley ('35-'37) 


The request for news of our dear 
Alma Mater and the doings of Old 
Boys therein arrived a very short 
time ago in the usual scenes of utter 
confusion which herald the entry of 
another year. Due to this confusion, 
and the exams which commence on 
Monday, we will be brief and, we 
hope, lucid. But we have our doubts 
on that. 

Benj Dellis is still with us — a 
prominent figure in the Engineering 
Building. Practically a patriarch, in 

John Henrie has struck the note 
patriotic this year; is now enveloped 
in the uniform of the C.O.T.C. He 
is also in Commerce. 

Terry King is majoring in lan- 
guages, debutantes and other forms 


of culture, including a stellar per- 
formance in a road show of "The Man 
Who Came To Dinner" — he was a 

Sandy McCallum, after a summer 
spent in imparting his knowledge to 
the R.C.A.F. Wireless School, has 
joined the Signals and is now at 
Brockville. Sandy McCallum, B.Sc, 
that is — he was graduated. 

Bill Wilder's happy, smiling face 
has been gracing the halls of second 
year Commerce. The other day, 
however, one of our operatives saw 
him in Navy uniform. 

Mike Little starred at outside in 
inter-company football and is taking 
Arts. Pat Hardy is struggling with 
Pre-Engineering. Hugh Scott is at 

And finally your two scribes are in 
third year Engineering by the Grace 
of God and the Committee on Stand- 
ings and Promotion, and at this stage 
of the game are studying like fools. 

Yours sincerely and in haste, 

Mick Crerar, 
Mouse Watson. 


Varsity life has been probably 
fuller this last term than at any time 
since the last war, since Military 
Training has been added as a full-time 
course to our academic life. Every- 
body (excluding females, of course, 
and even they are seen sometimes in a 
uniform which adds to the military 
rainbow) within a prescribed age group 
must take a military training which 
will correspond to that which they 
would otherwise be eligible for if they 
were not at the University. The 
Engineers and Medical students have 
now less spare time than ever since 
their courses were far more exacting 
in the first place than the Arts courses. 

This new demand on our time has 
left little room for all the extra- 
curricular activities which made Uni- 
versity life so pleasant in quieter 
times. But it is a small sacrifice to 
make and it would be a good guess 
that it will not be the last that the 
student will be asked (or told) to 
make. At any rate changes in our 
everyday life do not arrive with the 

precipitant haste or revolutionary 
nature that pessimists are always 
predicting with every reversal in the 
fortunes of war, regardless of whether 
or not they should come. It is enough 
to say that the student is waiting, 
with everybody else, to fit his personal 
plans into the decisions of the 
government (which surely must come 
soon) and in the meantime concen- 
trating on the job in hand, namely 
continuing his course and preparing 
himself, militarily or otherwise, for 
whatever niche he is best suited for. 

You see Old Boys everywhere and 
doing everything down here at Varsi- 
ty. For no other reason than lack of 
space, we cannot mention every name, 
but a cross-section will give a good 
idea of the many activities that 
College Old Boys are interested in. 

We saw Maurice Clarkson (sixth 
year Medicine) in the Hart House 
pool the other day. His diving is as 
polished as ever. Other Alpha Delts 
are Johnnie Henderson, who as usual 
seems to be head of everything he 


gets into; Norm Urquhart, who is 
working hard at Mining Engineering, 

military work, and Miss ; Hugh 

Gallie, immersed in skiing and Medi- 
cine; recent A.D.'s are Don Simpson, 
Art Ridler, and Johnny Aird, Ralph 
Gibson, Bill Waylett, etc., who all 
seem to be working hard principally 
at Engineering courses. 

Old Boys in the Kap House are: 
Dick Howard (situated much the 
same as Norm Urquhart), Bob Road- 
house, Joe Prentiss, Murray Douglas 
(recently engaged), Jake Whitting- 
ham, Al Adams, Mel Jones, Norm 
McMurrich — the list goes on in- 
definitely. Recent additions are Bill 
Tamblyn, Colin Gibson, and Tim 

We could go on for some time 
listing Old Boys down here — a con- 
servative estimate of our number 
would be sixty or seventy. Plans, as 
I've said, are vague and indefinite. 
Considering the time and money 
already spent on their university 
careers — considering also their ulti- 
mate value (especially among the 
Engineers) in the war effort, many 
are tentatively planning to continue 
and if possible to finish what they 
originally set out to do. But whether 
we are going to be able to (for any one 
of a number of reasons) is another 
matter entirely.
